  • Equally at home in the worlds of symphonic music and opera, Gleason has conducted notable ensembles including The Orchestra Now, the Dallas Opera Orchestra, the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, and the Eastern Festival Orchestra; served as the assistant conductor for opera productions with Opera Philadelphia, The Glimmerglass Festival, Curtis Opera Theater, the Bard Graduate Vocal Arts Program, and served as Music Director of The Final Veil Opera during its residency and world premiere at The Cell Theater. Gleason has assisted conductors including Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Osmo Vänskä, David Stern, Michelle Rofrano, Emily Senturia, and Joseph Colaneri. In the coming months, she will conduct the Musicians of Ma’alwyck in a production of Argento’s A Waterbird Talk, serve as assistant conductor for The Juilliard School’s production of La clemenza di Tito, and work with Hilary Hahn and the Civic Orchestra of Chicago in a masterclass. 
    Interdisciplinary collaboration and community building are at the core of Gleason’s music-making. She is curious about how artists across disciplines, activists, and researchers can most effectively collaborate, and therefore co-founded LOAM, an artistic partnership presenting semi-immersive theatrical and musical works. 
    An avid performer and lover of chamber music, Gleason has appeared as a conductor with Chamber Music Northwest, Philharmonic Society of Orange County, Friends of Music Concerts Inc, and at the 92nd Street Y; as both a singer and conductor with the Phoenix Chamber Music Society. 
    Gleason obtained her Masters degrees in Conducting and Vocal Arts at Bard College-Conservatory of Music, and holds a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts. She is an alumna of several notable training programs such as the Aspen Music Festival and the Conducting Institute at Oxford. Gleason was named a 2021 conducting fellow at the Eastern Music Festival and was recognized by The Gena Branscombe Foundation with their 2021 Emerging Conductor Award.  
    She is also an accomplished singer, and performed as alto soloist as well as in professional ensembles throughout the US.  
    Micah Gleason joined Intermusica as mentee in early 2024.

'Gleason honors the fluidity of the score, keeping the rhythm loose and seductive. It’s for this reason that the frenzied finale absolutely punches us in the face. Gleason up to this point has been teasing, stirring the orchestra with a subtle, gentle hand. When the finale arrives, Gleason digs in, and her joy and exuberance come through both in the music and in her physical performance.'
